An Overview of the NALS Board of Directors Retreat
Dear NALS Member 


As a responsibility to membership, NALS Board of Directors and the association’s legal counsel (Hall Estill) have rectified the internal issues amongst staff, and the investigation is now concluded. As legal support professionals, you all can appreciate that concerns regarding sensitive personnel matters directly cannot be disclosed. We do, however, want to clear up a few rumors that have been circulating over the past few months. At no time, was any employee of NALS, Inc. being investigated for embezzlement. We do not have reason to believe that any staff person has misappropriated any funds of NALS, Inc. We want to remind you that this investigation was solely regarding staff/employees of NALS, Inc. The Board of Directors received counsel from an independent third-party (attorney, Molly Aspan) who represented NALS, Inc., which includes the NALS Board, all committees, states, chapters, and members. At no point did counsel represent or advise any employee.
Throughout this process, we have heard your concerns, and we are striving to maximize transparency while simultaneously complying with the law. As such, we would like to provide you with a list of topics discussed during our Board Retreat earlier this month.
NALS 68th Annual Education + Networking Conference (Little Rock, Arkansas)
We are pleased to have all staff joining us during the 68th Annual Education and Networking Conference in Little Rock, AR, September 26-28, 2019. While you’re at the conference, make sure you say hi to Lydia Goodner, Maria Easterly, and Morgan Ballou, and thank them for their hard work.
The NALS Board of Directors will be hosting a Networking suite. Throughout the Conference, we encourage all attendees to stop by the suite during session breaks.
Thank you to the NALS Foundation for continuing to sponsor our keynote speaker. Trustees are also working on our celebration of NALS 90th year.
We will also be recognizing Tammy Hailey, CAE, the retiring Executive Director of NALS, for her 40 years of service to the association and this community. Tammy’s service has been invaluable, and we would not have made it this far without her.
The Little Rock Conference Taskforce has been working diligently to find great speakers for this year’s conference and we much appreciate every one of them. We intend to have a detailed schedule on the website soon.
National Structure
We have received numerous emails concerning our current Standing Rules and Bylaws, and believe that now is a great time to make some proposed changes. As such, we are implementing a Governance Review Taskforce. Additionally, with the transition to a new Executive Director, we are implementing a Financial Oversight Committee. These new processes will create a more transparent environment. Be on the lookout for more details about how to become involved in these groups.
Previously, a decision was made to increase member dues by $5.00 effective July 1, 2019. As a result of the sale of the NALS Resource Center last year, the Board has decided that this increase is unnecessary and will no longer be added to your dues. If you have received an invoice for your July 2019 membership dues, please contact Morgan Ballou for an adjustment. Moving forward, all other invoices have been corrected.
Certification + Education
NALS Board of Directors is seeking grants to support numerous innovative board initiatives. If you are a skilled grant writer, please contact us at Board@NALS.org.
We intend to provide another NALS Certification amnesty opportunity. Details of that event will be announced in a digital publication later this year.
Staff
NALS Board of Directors and staff will be utilizing an online project management system to establish accountability and continued communications amongst staff and board members. This will allow us to better report to our members on the status of any pending projects.
Finally, be on the lookout for the announcement about our 2020 and 2021 annual conference locations.
Thank you to the members who have reached out to the Board with your suggestions and feedback. It is because of our members that we can make NALS the go-to association for all legal support professionals.
